The SRA Launch is a Go for Saturday February 20th.
The SRA Club has received a Special Event Permit for our launches on the third Saturday of the month.
We can't block roads (one lane fully passable for Emergency Vehicles) and only park and setup beside the roads (from the edge and not more than 15' from the edge) not well off the roads on Private Property.
We are on our best behavior for a while.
